HLA Matching for Cord Blood Units
Thursday, December 12, 2019 | 12:00 PM CT
Human Leukocyte Antigens (HLA) matching for Cord Blood Units (CBU) is much more complex than blood typing. This webinar will cover how to find the best match and what information is needed to select the most optimal CBU based on HLA profiles. Josefine Teeler, Team Lead - Transplant Center Services for Matchis Foundation will provide information on how matchgrade is determined for CBUs and the guidelines for selection.
She will also discuss the differences between n/6, n/8, and n/10 matchgrade. Attendees will also learn about minimal matchgrade and (permissive) mismatches. By choosing the best CBU for a patient not only HLA is considered, so therefore we will also briefly review the balance between matchgrade, cell dose and diagnosis of the patient.
